    Hello

    I bought a 57 in 2018 and have been working on it since. Precious owner said it just needed some sanding and then paint . I replaced the floor, right quarter, trunk floor, engine, tranny, wiring, etc. I could complain but I am enjoying the work plus it gives me something to spend my money on.

    I will call my 57 "someday" and hope to add "soon" soon. Just needs paint and windows and. 2nd pic is going to get a new headliner and windshield installed. Engine runs but it is kinda cold out and the upholstery guy is 20 miles away.

    The other project in the shop is a 67 camaro. We (older brother) replaced the floor, trunk pan, quarters, etc. I think I am a broken record.
    Thanks for letting me join.
    Mike

    Looks great. I've been saying "soon" for several years now. People quit asking me when it's going to be done, and those who do I tell them I don't know. Welcome to the site.

    67 is not only the first year of Camaro but also the coolest, my 56 was sidelined dozens of times in my first 28 years of ownership. The first time to build my first 67 Camaro in HS. Still have the 67 I built in college.

    But the best looking Camaro is the '69...that's why everyone wants one and prices have soared.

    Welcome Mike. You (and your brother) seem like "do-ers" regarding your car builds (not just talkers with no action).
    We encourage you here, and we'd like to help when you need it.
    Post any questions, comments, concerns in the various sub forums here, and let's get another one on the road.
    You're actually very near that point with what you've done so far.
    Welcome.

    Thank you for the welcome!
    I will start a project thread and I do have many questions.
    As far as being do-ers, yes we are. Funny how the compromises are ok when you do the work.

    Not hardly, they look bloated next to a 67.

    If that's the case, it's an attractive bloat. I'll take one.
